Hi! How to add a desktop system monitor widget to your desktop. this video was made possible because of your request through comments. thanks for the view!!
conky settings: http://conky.sourceforge.net/config_settings.html
To start we will need to install conky,
sudo apt-get install conky -y
now lets download the conky configuration file
wget -O /home/pi/.conkyrc https://raw.githubusercontent.com/novaspirit/rpi_conky/master/rpi3_conkyrc
to autostart conky on boot we will need to create 2 files, 1 will be a shell script to delay the boot process of conky. 2. will be the conky desktop files to allow lxdesktop to start the shell script
to create the shell script
sudo nano /usr/bin/conky.sh
paste this into the conky.sh file
(sleep 4s && conky) &
now lets create the conky.desktop file for the autostart process
sudo nano /etc/xdg/autostart/conky.desktop
and paste this into the file
Comment=system monitoring tool.
the last thing to do is to reboot to make sure everything is working!
